Catch-up Post

Hello All

I'm sure some of you may have noticed that I've been missing of late and here's why.
Suddenly on Wednesday afternoon, not long after I posted on What's On Your Desk Wednesday, I developed excruciating pain in my right jaw.
The EM took me to the Emergency Department at our local hospital where I was examined and given a cocktail of painkillers and antibiotics. Still not sure exactly what caused it but the doctor thought it was either an infection of the parotid gland or an abscess caused by my wisdom tooth. Fortunately, whatever the cause it's responding well to the meds - still sore but nothing like as bad as it was.
I've still to see my dentist. Hopefully he will be able to tell me for sure what caused the problem. Whatever, I may be about to lose that much treasured wisdom tooth!

Hoping to be back, firing on all cylinders, soon.

Oh you poor thing. How remarkable that the pain just comes upon you like that. Really glad the EM didn’t hesitate and got you to the Hospital. So debilitating, that level of pain. I hope you’re more comfortable gal. Xx

Ouch, that sounds awful...toothache is so debilitating. I'm glad it's responding to the meds and hope you're feeling more comfortable xx

I recently suffered from toothache, there's nothing quite like it for pain is there?
Let's hope you get it sorted quickly.
